While staying at the nearby Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort & Campgrounds, we decided to venture out on this hike after breakfast and before our afternoon soak in the hot springs. The well groomed trail among the lush, beautiful forest made for a spectacular, short and easy hike for our family that included three children - ages 7, 8 &... More

We enjoyed this waterfall; however, we live near the Columbia River Gorge, so waterfalls are something we can access easily. Of all of the things to do while driving around the Peninsula, it was not my favorite, as we have scenery like this near home. However, it was pleasant to drive around the gorgeous Lake Crescent at sunset on the... More

We were hiking this and thought we found the waterfall already, but we kept going and then found the true Sol Duc Falls. We were the only ones there and it was bigger than I expected. The trail is easy and well taken care of. Will go back!

Though it was a long drive off the highway, the hike to the Sol Duc Falls was lovely and certainly worth the drive to get there! Hiking through the lush forest, across little bridges and a smaller falls, it is a really beautiful area. We visited in May and the falls were spectacular!

Haven't seen this kind of green in years, really rain forest style with the heat and moisture, but worth it for the short trail, really create a scene as in Amazon, with all kinds of bugs though. At the end of the trail appears the big fall, we saw 2 rainbows that day, nice and finally cooler compare with in... More

It's an easy 2 mile round-trip to the Falls and its scenic throughout. There are plenty of moss covered rocks and gushing streams adding to the beauty of the rain forest. You can hear the thunder of the Sol Duc Falls from a distance: we were surprised at the force of the water! We went there on a sunny afternoon... More

Easy to follow trails out to the falls and it looks like the bridges and walkways over small streams are a new addition. The sun goes down quick behind the mountain so plan accordingly. The forest is full of animals and you don't want to be out there at night.The falls are beautiful, very swift and loud. The forest is... More

A very easy 3/4 mile hike among the trees and stream and a waterfall of approximately 100 foot or more. In October there was a lot of water but I am sure May & June the falls would be even more spectacular

Nice little hike to beautiful waterfall The Sol Duc waterfall in Olympic National Park is a just an easy 0.8 mile hike (each way) through a forest. Although there is a little up and down they are quite minor and an easy walk. From the parking lot, as you hike the 0.8 miles you will gain 200 ft in elevation... More

From Hwy 101 its about 15 mi to the trailhead (2 mi beyond the Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort). Along the way, the Salmon Cascades stop is a very short walk to the overlook of these cascades. Didn't see any salmon jumping, but a nice view anyway. The trail to Sol Duc Falls is 0.8 mi and relatively flat. Although... More
